TyTy Washington: Top 2022 NBA Draft Prospect

2022 NBA Draft Prospect Rankings: A (Washing)ton of Movement

There has been a (Washing)ton of movement on this week’s Update. The Top 10 are solidifying themselves. 

Notes:

  • Comps are for play style and role not specifically the same level. 
  • The Thompson Twins will for now be removed until more clarity, after some internal debate that seems more fair. 
  • Pelle Larsson, Tramon Mark, Keyonte Johnson, and Langston Love are not ranked because of the injuries. I will re evaluate them at a later date.
